IELTS Essay 16 Volume 6 (V6E16)

Neighbors are the people who live near us. In your opinion, what are the qualities of a good neighbor? Use specific details and examples in your answer.

(a) Neighbors are part of our daily lives. They are part of the process of socialization. Socialization is the process in which we interact with other people. In our lives we are always trying to look for a good area to live, a nice house, and most important of all good neighbors. This will influence in the decision of either moving to the area, or star looking for another area. In my opinion a good neighbor will be those who are respectful, friendly, and helpful.

The first quality that good neighbors should have is to be respectful. Respect is the most important aspect of being good neighbor. Neighbors should respect your space and privacy in order to live in a peaceful environment. Being a respectful neighbor means not invading your personal space as well as your property. Another example will be to maintain a quiet environment not allowing loud music, or noise that will bother others. Respect to one another is the most important quality that a neighbor should have in order to live in harmony.

Another quality of a good neighbor is that it should be friendly. All people should be friendly to one another, but this quality is most important when it comes to neighbors. Neighbors are close to you, to your home, property and most important to your family. You might not see them every day, but they live next to you all the time. These are the reasons why they should be friendly. One of the ways to be friendly is by showing they care about you, and they should welcome you to their neighborhood. Friendly neighbors make a good and united society.

The last quality of good neighbor is that it should be helpful. Neighbors as well as everyone should be helpful to one another. Helpfulness is a characteristic that everyone should have. A helpful neighbor is that, that in the times of need is there for you. For example, if a person is in a situation where he/she needs a moral support for the lost a loving family member, the neighbor should give this person all the support he/she might need and encourage he/she that they can count on them no matter what.

Overall good neighbors are those whom are respectful in every way. Friendly, that every time you see them they greet you with a good smile. And good neighbors are those whom are helpful whenever you need a supporting hand.

(b) Neighbors are the people who live closest to us, so close that there maybe only a cemented wall separating their abodes. Therefore, I believe that a person has many responsibilities towards his neighbors. In my opinion the qualities of a good neighbor are, that he should be helpful, friendly understanding and trustworthy,

I would like to quote a personal example here. This incident just happened last year when a couple of my relatives came with arms to threaten my father. My mother and me were on the door and screaming our lungs out at them. Hearing our voices my neighbor, a very pious lady, came to our house with her guards and sons. She helped us to get our relatives reported to the police and that’s not it she walked beside my family in every trial concerning this issue. Now that truly is a quality of a good neighbor! She turned better than our relatives also, a helpful and faithful friend, indeed.

Another quality of a good neighbor is to be trustworthy. A neighbor always has some knowledge about what is going on in the four boundaries of a house. This is because he lives so close to you, he can hear voice, see your appearances, and observe who comes to your house and who goes; at what time. Basically, a neighbor can gossip about half of the things happening in your life. That is where the quality of a good neighbor comes in. A good neighbor should be trustworthy and sensible enough to not leak out one’s family secrets.

I believe that neighbors are very close people and being a good neighbor is a duty that everyone should fulfill. It highlights the basic concept of give and take. As a neighbor is the nearest person to one in the darkest hour of the night also, therefore one should always be a good neighbor so that he is also treated in the same manner when he is need.
